ACBD hosted Professor Peter Grant from the University of Leeds at the beginning of 2016 (and he was appointed as Adjunct Prof). Peter is planning a  return visit later this year and sent host Rob Medcalf a copy of the Alumni magazine in which he wrote a very warm article about his experience at Monash (pages 12-13).

Peter says, "I felt and still feel a great debt of gratitude to Rob Medcalf for giving me the opportunity to work in Melbourne for three months and to my clinical and academic colleagues for allowing me to leave Leeds for this time. Indeed, visiting Melbourne has been one of the cultural and academic highlights of my entire career."
